The man with the horn


After his fusion album On the corner in 1972, Miles Davis went on hiatus, and quit music entirely in 1975. The jazz trumpeter that had re-invented himself so many times in the past got a lot of critique from colleagues for giving in too much to popular demand. With this album he went a step further: this is mixing jazz with pop music by way of funk.

I’ve never liked funk that much: too poppy for me I guess. For me Miles Davis is interesting up until halfway the Sixties. I lost my faith in him with Bitches brew, where he is experimenting with fusion and psychedelic funk.
